The FBI is tracking a mere handful of Castro spies in Miami, and El Niuyortain is making a big deal out of it.
Yes, a whopping number of 5 Cuban exiles with connections to Castro, Inc. — who are very proud of their pro-Castro activism– have been “targeted” by FBI agents.
As one might expect, El Niuyortain is shining a bright light on this FBI investigation as a nefarious human rights abuse by the Trump administration.
Thank God, dear Mildred, that the New York Times is paying much more attention to these human rights abuses in the U.S. than on all those fake claims of human rights abuses in the socialist utopia of Cuba!

The F.B.I. Is Quietly Contacting Cubans in Florida, Raising Old Alarm Bells
Julio V. Ruiz, a 71-year-old retired psychiatrist with a long history of participating in talks with the Cuban government, tried to ignore the persistent knocking at his door by two strangers when they showed up uninvited one afternoon last week.
The rapping on the door went on for 15 minutes. It was the F.B.I.
“Everyone tells you not to speak to them and to call your lawyer,” Dr. Ruiz said. “But you get scared. I was measured in what I said, and gave them a brief history of Cuba going back to the 19th century.”
At least five Cuban-Americans in Miami, including Dr. Ruiz, who have opposed a trade embargo with Cuba and promoted better relations with the communist government in Havana, said they received surprise visits in the past week from federal agents.
The law enforcement representatives were vague about their intentions, gave only their first names, and asked questions that seemed intended to learn about contacts with Cuban diplomats, Dr. Ruiz said…
… Those contacted were among a large group of exiles who came to the United States as children in the early 1960s, fleeing the Castro dictatorship. As adults, they supported engaging with the Cuban government, even when doing so was deeply unpopular in South Florida and often caused them to be ostracized…… Some of those contacted said they feared that they were being targeted as part of President Trump’s moves to curtail travel to Cuba and roll back new openings with Havana that had been enacted by the Obama administration….. “I think it borders on harassment, because it isn’t illegal to talk about stuff with the embassy of the country where you were born,” said Elena Freyre, 70, president of ForNorm, a foundation that promotes the normalization of relations between Washington and Havana. “And it’s kind of weird to have the F.B.I. asking questions about that.”Read the whole shocking article HERE
